? unfortunately for the fiscal year, the u.s. deficit totals 1$1.4 trillion. it exceeded the $4 trillion mark. >>> jack kennedy and paul ryan, perfect together? some things about them that are similar. both young, energetic, viant. paul ryan things they have something in common, joe biden not so sure. the republican candidate invoked a camelot era comparison. this time, the issue taxes. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and preserve important preferences for middle class taxpayers. >> not mathematically possible. >> it's been done before. >> it's never been done before. >> a couple of times. >> nevereen done before. >> ronald reagan. >> now you're jack kennedy. >> ronald reagan. >> twitter was atwitter about that. that comment got a noticeable reaction from the group of undecided voters i watched during the debate last night. see it blown up there in the bottom of the screen. here is the problem, both kennedy and reagan working in a different time and place. to start, when both kennedy and reagan took office, individual tax rates not even in the ballpark of what we have now. kennedy's plan, ena
'60s, we were running budget surpluses. even in the early '80s, the budget deficit was a lot smaller. that's the key reason i'd be concerned. i think tax reform is a good idea. doug is right. we need to have tax reform, but we need tax reform that raises enough revenue to lower tax rates and also goes to reducing future budget deficit because if we don't get the deficits down, lower tax rates aren't going help us. >> and doug, do you think it's fair to say, romney ryan have been saying they think a 3% growth is reasonable. do you think it is? because for in of this math to work out and this whole argument everybody's having about whether they can cut taxes and close enough loopholes, they are counting on economic growth on being part of making up that difference. will it? >> you can't say for sure because good tax policy does t matter. t not the only thing going on out there and you would have to have a displn palestinianed, economic policy. we have a serious threat to the economy from existed and projected debt. it is different from the era of reagan in that debt is not being driv
problems. they've got some deficits they need to overcome. i want to go over a couple other numbers. it's all about the honesty and the truthfulness and then the consistency. let's start with the honest and truthful aspect. there you have obama leading romney 44-39 when it comes to just how honest and truthful you think these candidates are. then when it comes to consistency, which the obama campaign has been hammering away on what they perceive as flip-flops, 47-37. that is what some people, hogan, my dear friend, former intern, which i always like to disclose, is a trust deficit. is it? >> well, so much of american politics is based on do i know you, do i trust you and do i like you. those are some damaging numbers for governor romney for sure. but look, the fact of the matter is he crushed president obama in that debate and these numbers reflecting what a lot of people saw and that was a center rowtype that had been lined out about romney that he was some cold, heartless business man. he turned that on its ear. conversely, one of the stereotypes out for president obama is he's a grea
. >> tough choices, to reduce the deficit. and we need revenue in order to get that done. and we're going to have to ask millionaires and billionaires to do their fair share in order to get that done. but he refuses to saddle seniors and the middle class with that entire burden. >> but you're defining middle class in this press release -- as people earning between 100 and $200,000 a year. >> well, that's not where we established the baseline. the president has said that if you make $250,000 or less, that your taxes shouldn't go up. that's where we've set the bar. >> all right. well, we will leave it there. thank you very much, ben le bolt, appreciate your taking the time. i would like to get that little sharpie version. of your press release. >>> all right. well, you may think we're obsessing over a number, this $5 trillion versus $1 trillion. but the reason we're doing it, we don't think it's just a number. it goes to the heart of whether president obama stays in the white house. and that is because of what ben le bolt was saying. that number is about whether you're for the middle class
